Define steady state, and comment on the relevance of this concept to theories of enzyme reactivity.
Answer to relevant QuestionsFor an enzyme that displays Michaelis–Menten kinetics, what is the reaction velocity, V (as a percentage of Vmax), observed at the following values? (a) [S] 5 KM (b) [S] 5 0.5KM (c) [S] 5 0.1KM (d) [S] 5 2KM (e) [S] 5 10KM How do the KM values for glucoki-nase and hexokinase reflect their roles in sugar metabolism? Why foes the apparent KM decrease in the presence of an uncompetitive inhibitor? Distinguish between the concerted and sequential models for the behavior of allosteric enzymes. Is the term KM used with allosteric enzymes? What about competitive and noncompetitive inhibition? Explain.
